Powerful yet affordable X299 CPU. I managed to overclock mine to 4.9Ghz at 1.3v but that was a tad hot so I settled at 4.8Ghz at 1.24v.
Quality processor. Definitely would build with it again.
Very powerful cpu. Wish I'd waited for coffee lake, but this is still a good choice. It doesn't run too hot, and it has six cores and twelve threads which make it awesome for 3d rendering and recording/streaming.
Great workhorse CPU for anyone planning on running many virtual machines, and processing graphics. It might not have the power to weight ratio for gaming like the K's, but it hits the sweet spot for work.
Seems to run cool (in a custom loop) with some overclocking, I haven't given it a flogging yet so can't advise on the ridiculous yet.
The 7800x is a great value in my opinion. I got it in a newegg bundle with the motherboard, cpu, and H75 cpu cooler so I ended up saving hundreds. As for performance, it does everything I need it to and more. My only gripe is the heat when overclocked but that's not too big of a deal with liquid cooling.
Incredible processor! I have not had any problems with the processor overheating since I bought it, and doubt that I will have any problems with it for a long time. The processor was definitely worth the extra money for the X299 platform.
